TUE DETECTIVES OF LONDON.
BY CIIAIU.ES DICKENS.
Your wife discovers, on retiring for I lie night,
that her boxes arc void her toilette tab'e ia
bare ; except the ornaments she now wenis, In r
beauty is unadorned, ns tlmt of a Quakeress ;
not a thing in left , nil the fond tokens you gave
her, pre-imptinl lover, are gone j your own min
iature, with its setting nf gold and brilliants;
her late mother's diamonds ; the bracelet:! "dear
papa" presented on her last birthday j the tup
of every bottle in the dressing case, brought
from Paris by Uncle John, at tlio risk of nls
life, in February, 1853, (being gold,) are otT
but the bottles (being glass) remain. Every
valuable is swept nwny with the most discrim
inating villainy ; for no other thing in the cham
ber has been touched, not a chair lias been
moved ; tho costly pendule on the chimney piece
etill ticks; tho cntiio uptrtment is ns neat
and trim ns when it had received tlio finishing
touch of the housemaid's duster. The entiro
establishment runs frantically up stairs and
down stairs; and finally congregates in my
lady's chamber. Nobody knows anything what
ever about it, yet everybody offers a suggestion,
although they hato not uu idea ' who ever did
it." The housemaid burets into tears, the cook
declares she thinks sho is going into hysterics,
and at last you suggest sendiug for tho po
lice ; which is taken a9 a supposition of insult
on tho wholo nssemblol household, and they
descend into tho lower regions of the home in
X 40 arrives. TTis faco betrays sheepishness
combined with mystery. He turns his bull's
eye iuto every corner of tho passage, and upon
every countenance on the premises. He exam
ines all the lock', bolts, and bars, bestowing ex
tra diligence on tho.e which enclosed the stolen
treasure. These he declares have been "wio
nted," thus concisely intimating, without quot
ing Pope, that there has been more than one
"ltape ot tho .lock, lie men noies ine non
disturbance of other valuabUs; takes you sol
emnly aside, darkens his lantern, nnd usks in a
mysterious whisper, if you suspect any of your
servants, which implies that ho does. He then
examines the upper b.;d rooms, and, ii the
room of tho female servants he discovers the
least valuable of tho rings nnd a cast-off silver
toolbpiik between tho mattresses. You have
every confidence in your maids, but what can
you think? You suggest their safe custody,
but your wife intercedes, nnd the policeman
would prefer speaking to his inspector before
ho locks anybody up.
Had the whole matter remained in the hands
of X 40, it is possible that your whole troubles
would have lasted till now. A train of legal
proceedings actions for defamation of char
acter and suits for damages would have fol
lowed, costing more than tho value of the
jewels, together with tho entire execration ol
nil your neighbors and every private friend of
your domestics. But, happily, tho Inspector
promptly sends a plain, earnest-looking man,
who announces himself as one of two detectives
of the X division. He settle the whole matter
in ten minutes. His examination is ended
in five minutes. As a connoisseur can deter
mine tho painter of a picture at the first glance,
or a wine-taster the precise vintage of a sherry
by the merest sip, o tho detective at once
pounces upon tho authors of tho work of art
under consideration, by tho style of perform
ances, if not upon the executant of the
"school" to which bo brlong. Having fin
ished tho toilette branch of the inquiry, he
takes a short view of the parapet of our house,
and makes an equally cursory investigation of
the attic window fastenings. His mind is made
up, nnd most likely ho will address you in
these words :
" All right, sir. This is done by ono ot the
' Dancing School.' "
' Impossible I " exclaims your plundered
partner. " Why, our children go to Monsieur
i'ctitoes, of No. 18, and I assure you he is a
highly respectable professor. As to his pu
The detective smiles and interrupts. " Danc
ing," ho tolls her, "is a unine given to tho sort
of burglar by whom you have been lobbed,
and every branch of tho thieving profession is
divided into gangs, which are termed schools.
From No. 32 to tho ends of tho street tho hout.es
are unfinished. The thief made his way to
the top of ono of those, and crawled to the
' But wo are twonty houses distant, and why
did ho not favor one of my neighbors 't " you
" Either their uppermost stories nro not ro
practicable, or tho ladies have not such valu
" But bow did the thieves know that ? "
"By watching and inquiry. This alfair mny
havo been in preparation for more than ti
month. Your house has been watched ; your
habits havo been asceituiiitd. They nave
found out when you dine how long you re
main in tho dining-room. A day is selected ;
whilo you are busy dining, nnd your borvants
waiting on you, the thing is done. 1'ievioiisly
many tourneys havo been mado over the roots
to find nut tho beht means of entering your
house. Tho attio is chosen j the lobber gels in
and creeps tmiselesdy, or 'dances' into tho
placo to bo robbed."
" Is ihero any chance of recovering your
properly?" you nik anxiously, seeing tho
whole matter ut a glance.
" I hope so. I have sent Eomo brother offi
cers to watch the fences' houses."
Fences ? "
" Fences," explained tho detective, in reply
to your innocent inquiry, "nro purchasers of
stolen goods. Your jewels will torn be forced
out of their settings, and the gold melted."
A suppressed scream.
" We ehall bco if, at this unuaual hour of the
night, there is any butlo in or near uny of
these places; if any smoko is coming out of
any ono of their furnaces, where tho melting
takes place, I thall go and Beck out the pre
cise 'gnrrettccr' that's nuolher naino these
plunderers g'uc th"mclves whom I suspect.
By his trying to ' sell ' your ilonn-stici by plat ing
tho ring and toothpick in their bed, 1 think 1
know the man."
Tho next moriiiinr yon find nil these suppo
silions verified. Tho detective calls, and
obliges you, at breakfast, (after a sleepless
night,) with a complete list of tho stolen arti
cles, and produces somo of them for identifi
cation, in three monttis your wito gets nearly
every article back, except some of the gold
her damsel's innocence is fully eitnblMied i
and the thiit'is taken from h's ' School ' to spend
a Ion holiday in a penal colony.
Sometimes thev aro called unon to investi
gate robberies so executed' that no human in.
itenuily appears, to ordiuary obsetvers, capa
ble of finding the thief. The robber has left
no trail; no trace. Every clue seems cut off;
but the experience of n detective guides him
into tracks invisible to other eyes. Not long
since, a trunk was rilled at n fashionable hotel.
The theft was so managed that no suspicion
0 Jiild rest oil any one. Tho detective who was
sent for fairly owned, after making a minute
examination, that he could afford no hope of
elucidating the mystery. As lie was leaving
the bedroom, however, in which the portman
teau stood, he picked up nn ordinniy shirt but
ton from the carpet. Ho silently compared it
with those on the shlits which the thief had
left behind in the trunk. It did not match
thtin. Ue said nothing, but hung about the
hotel for tho rest of the day. Had ho been
narrowly watched, ho would have been set
down for an eccentric critic of linen. He was
looking for a wristband or shirt front without
a button. His search was long nnd patient,
but at length it was rewarded. Ono of the in
mates of the house showed a deficiency in his
dress, which no one but a detective would
havo noticed. He looked as narrowly ns lie
dared at the pattern of the remaining buttons.
It corresponded with that of the little telltale
he had picked up. He went deeper into the
subject, got a trace of some of the stolen prop
erty, ascertained a connection between it and
the suspected person, confronted him with the
owner of the trunk, and finally succeeded in
convicting him of the theft. At another hotel
robbery, tho blado of a knife broken in the lock
of n portmanteau formed the clue. Tho de
tective employed in that case was for somo
time indefatigablo in seeking out knives with
broken blades. At length he found one be
longing to nn under waiter, who proved to be
Mrs. J. C. Higgins, living near Bridget creek,
Wis., one evening, n few weeks since, heard nn
unusual noise at the calf-pen, nnd upon going
out found that something like a dozen wolves
were contemplating nn attack npon tho calf.
Unon her nnnroach. thev retreated a short dis
tance. Mrs. H. is a good hot with a rifle, and'
sue iirai uuurriiiuieu 10 snoot at icnsioue or ino
intruders with her husband's loaded rifle. Upon
reflection, she put strychnine upon some meat
she had in the house, and gave it to her un
welcome visiters. Upon the return of her hus
band, who was absent the fore part of (ho even
ing, ho found twelve wolves lying dead within
a few rods of the house.
A lad in Wilmington (N. C.) took enough of
ins muiuere money, on ueanesony, me J31I1
int., to uuy two small snot-guns, witu which lie
and a companion went shooting. The gun of
his companion accidentally exploded, shooting
Dickson in the head, as he was crossing a brook
near the town. The frightened boy ran home,
leaving Dickson buried in mud and water. He
was found on the following Friday morning,
Btilt alive, and lived till Saturday, when ho died,
after relating the manner of the accident. His
lying in the mud, dying almost, for two nights
and a day, was awlul.
A Cuntocs Coincidence. A letter from n
brother of Major Anderson to a gentleman in
New York city mentious tho following curious
coincidence: It is n very strange coincidence
that ray fathqr was that "captain of tho Conti
nental line" who, by mistai o of his superior,
Lcan the battlo of Trenton, where Hubert was
long stationod. And, as Major, ho was a pris
oner of war, in actual jail, led only on rice,
with the smallpox for a dessert, in the very
Charleston wheie his son of the same rank is
now stationed tho former under 1'arlton, the
latter under Buchanan. What a coincidence!
A German newspaper contains tho follow

FotiTOXAi E. Three poor hard-woi king men,
named Young, Blake, and La llassney, have

on the North Folk of Feather liver, California.
'1 he first day of discovery, beforu noon, they
panned out about one thousand dollars, and
although very little ground has been worked,
thi-y have nlieady realized $20,000.

about ono hundred thousand children, between
tho ages of four aud sixteen. The Slule

thousand children, at an actual expense ot
lour hundred thousand dollars, or five dollars
to each child. The uverago attend nice, how
ever, is but little over filly thousand.
A gentleman said once to his Bon who used
to btuy in bed lute in the morning: " Yuur
brother got up this morning at five o'clock, and
found on tho sidewalk a purse of gold."
" Verv well." replied the luzy young man, " if
the poor fellow to whom it belongs had re
mained in bed till ten, ho probably would not
havo lost it."

It Is printed on a largo sheet, 27 by 42 lnchos,
and is liimUhcd nt tho low prices slated below.
It will contain nil the original matter of the
daily National Republican, n ith the exception of
local news not interesting to country subscribers.
It will give full reports of the proceedings
of Congret s, and of the other departments of tho
It will contain all the news of the day. foreign
and domestic, markets, ic, ftc, ns well as an
original correspondence from nil parts of the
country. The uiUccllancous department will ro.
ccivo special attention, aud, in all respects, the
ett'ort will he made to establish the character of
tho Republican Era ns a
In politics, the paper will be Republican, sub
taking the Incoming Administration of Mr. Lin
coin, but disclaiming, however, any pretension
to be the organ ol tho President elect.
There is no other Republican paper In the
District nt Columbia, or iu the vicinity of it, and
it U believed ihat recent events have opened to
such 11 paper an inipoi taut sphere of useful ef
foit. Tho time has come, when the actual ad
m'nlslr.itlon of ihe Government upon Republican
principles will explode the misrepresentations
which have made thoso principles so distasteful
10 the doulh.
But U Is not only here, nnd in this vicinity,
that the projectors of tho Republican Era
hope to make it useful. To the whole country
thuy olfer a journal which will discuss national
politics from a national standpoln', and which
will never bo swerved from patriotic duly by any
ovei powering pressure of local interest.
